Approche orthodontique des asymétries Volume 73, issue 3, 75e réunion scientifique de la S.F.O.D.F. – L'asymétrie (2e partie)


From an orthodontic point of view, asymmetries can be gathered in three great clinical entities:

- mandibular lateral deviations,

- dental asymmetries without skeletal involvement,

- skeletal asymmetries.

Once the therapeutic aims and the principles of the orthodontic approach of these dysmorphoses have been recalled, the authors present the various orthodontic means implemented in this type of treatment. Four cases treated illustrate those types of treatment.
